The organisational system being examined for its leadership needs and provision is very different from the personal leadership skills, training and development needs of individual leaders and managers to assist them with their job and career. The system’s needs are also examined in a very different way. Also, note that the boundary of a ‘system’ may extend beyond a particular company/employer.
